Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

A beautiful place to enjoy a walk with family and friends, this is our go to beauty spot. Good choice of cafes and pubs to suit all budgets, to enjoy a lovely breakfast or drinks. We park further up from the public car park as the walk through the woods and arboretum is lovely. Make sure you wear suitable clothing and footwear though as it is often muddy underfoot!

Lovely path walks around the lake with trails leading into the woods. Pretty good under foot even after rain as the paths drain well and are sheltered by the trees. Beware of cyclists though who are not permitted around the lake but appear to ignore the signs.

Weather was such a nice change. What a gem to run. Bit muddy but not complaining..the views are stunning..best part all the dogs running around.

We usually park on a residential street about a 5 min walk from the lake as we can never get parked in the council small car park. I think the cafe in the lake grounds should be open all year, council missing out here. People want takeaway hot drinks & cakes. The walk is ok it’s nothing special and I think more dogs should be kept on leads as my small dogs get frightened easily by large uncontrollable dogs.

There are plenty of paths to chose from here so you can make your walk as long or short as you like, either staying on the waterside path or venturing into the woods. It's great for families with prams /wheelchairs, dog walkers or just on your own to get some fresh air.
